Chillin’ with Adam with Emma McIntosh & Special Guests: Robin Williams & Freddie Mercury
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine my son Adam working with celebrities like Robin Williams to redefine the concept of death. I knew when Adam was born that he was going to do something BIG. As time went by, the feeling turned dark as I began to fear for Adam’s future. Adam was such a unique soul. He felt so deeply and he just didn’t seem to fit in. When Adam and Nathan were little boys, I took them to Sunday school at Unity, a non-denominational metaphysical church. One Sunday, Adam drew a large image of the Earth and wrote in his best six-year-old handwriting, “I promise to help God and my country.” As much as Adam wanted to help the world, the more hate and violence he witnessed, the more he just didn’t want to be here anymore. Adam began telling me that he would have a short life when he was very young. Too young to even know what he was saying. There were many portends supporting his ominous proclamation. I had always had the feeling that I would lose one of my sons. I just didn’t know which one. In hindsight, the signs always pointed to Adam.
Two nights before the car accident occurred on January 23, 2011, I literally felt the ‘event’ I had been dreading coming closer. As soon as I saw Adam through the glass doors of his room in the Critical Care Unit, the Soul Contract kicked in. I knew which son and I knew that the BIG thing that Adam was born to do was to save the lives of others. I just didn’t know how BIG it would be. Adam began communicating with me while his body was still on life support. By the time his organs were harvested, there was no question in my mind that he was still there. Not in the way he was there before his soul left his body, but Adam’s soul was still very much alive and sending me messages confirming that though he was no longer in his body, he was indeed still very much alive somewhere.
Adam saved the lives of two individuals in need of lung and liver transplants and greatly improved the lives of three others who received his kidneys, and pancreas. As I forced myself through the process of planning Adam’s memorial service, shopping for memorial handouts, decorations, and my ‘funeral outfit,” etc., I found that sharing my anecdotes about Adam’s communicating with me while his body was still on life support lifted people’s hearts rather than plunging them into shared grief over my circumstances. It wasn’t long before I realized a kind of responsibility to tell Adam and my story on a wider scale and began writing Adam’s Gift. I never imagined that Adam would be connecting with celebrities in the spirit world who want to share their stories or that we would launch a YouTube channel before the book is even finished.
Had I known what was in store for Adam and me, I’d have agreed to the ‘life-saving’ surgery suggested by my gynecologist in 1981. I was diagnosed with Stage IV cervical cancer and advised to have a hysterectomy. I was a newlywed and I wanted to have children, so I elected to fire that doctor and went with a cervical conization instead. Had I known I would ‘lose’ the child I was willing to risk my own life to bring into the world, I’d have found a way to live without having children of my own. Yet, when the accident occurred, I knew on a soul level that I had agreed to this. I knew that I had agreed to give Adam back in order to save the lives of others. I just hadn’t realized how big it would be and what my role would be in seeing the plan to completion.
Once you lose a child, your whole life becomes about recovering from that black abyss of loss.
Adam’s last message to me in the minutes before I walked away from him for the last time was, “I would never trade places.” I hang onto those words every single day with the knowledge that Adam’s death is helping others to realize their loved ones are still here. There is no separation. Our ability to connect with our loved ones is commensurate with our ability to let go of our old definition of death; the one in which our loved ones are gone forever. As I let go of my old definition of death, my spirits lifted, my vibes began raising and I became aware of Adam in a whole new way. Now, I live to access the mysterious “somewhere” that Adam went to when he left the Earth plane.
“Adam really inspires us now because he’s reaching out from another world, from another dimension. Yes, we did our thing on Earth and then we came here, but we’re still guiding people. We’re behind the scenes. He inspires us now to reach out, to have more mediums talks to us. That’s why we have been reaching out to different people. We’re trying to connect because we really want to be a part of that new movement.” – Robin Williams
Like Adam, Freddie Mercury’s greatest act of giving resulted from his leaving.
“I’m grateful that my illness and my death has lead to people with AIDS now being able to survive; being able to have a long life. I’m grateful that my death lead to all that research and lead to all that money that was pumped into all that research. I’d die all over again that way if it meant that I get to save all these people’s lives now.” – Freddie Mercury
Robin and Freddie came forward to share the importance of creativity in saving our own lives.
According to Robin, “We’re all special. That’s where the creativity part comes in. If you can connect to your own creativity, it will show you just how special you really are and it will show you where your strengths are. When you can find those strengths inside of yourself, you can say, “Okay, how can I incorporate that strength and that feeling of, ‘Hey, I like this. This is fun. This is bringing stuff out of me I didn’t know I had.'” Once you find that, you need to find a way to incorporate it into your job. How can I make this into a job? Whatever you do with passion. Whatever you do with love. Whatever you want to do, when you wake up in the morning, if that’s the first thing you think about doing, if that’s what that is, then its always guaranteed going to lead to success. When you allow your creativity to prosper, don’t even worry about the money because that’ll just come as a result. That’s the problem. People think of the money first and then they think what they’re going to do creatively. It needs to go the other way around.”
Freddie added, “We’re living in a society, and this has been happening for a very long time, where creativity is not appreciated. They want you to be these robots, these machines that listen; and creativity helps people to dig deep within themselves. It helps them to find out who they really are and what they love doing. It helps people to think for themselves. You create your own art and society doesn’t really like that. They want you to follow. They want you to obey. They want you to follow the rules and be these worker bees. Just shut up, do your job and you get paid; and there you go. That’s what they want. Even if you look at the schools now days, they’re scratching so many classes in creativity and opening up and blossoming. Even when children will go and say, “I want to be a singer. I want to be a writer. I want to be a painter. Their parents are going to say, “No, no, no, you need to be something that makes money, Honey.” That’s the way people raise their children now days. It’s so sad. Because what we don’t understand is that with creativity, let me say it differently. We need creativity to solve the problems we have now at hand. We need to brainstorm. We need to find resourceful answers to what is going on in the planet right now. For that, you need your creative thinking. You need to be able to think outside of the box. Outside of what you’ve learned in school. Creativity is innovation.” – Freddie Mercury
